Dining options to match any mood

On tonight's menu? A signature Princess® pasta – served with freshly-prepared sauces. Or perhaps a lean cut steak, perfectly complemented by a glass of pinot noir. Another night, it could be homemade Italian pizza by the pool. That's the beauty of dining on a Princess ship – there's always something to match whatever your mood might be.

Your choice of Anytime or Traditional Dining

A sumptuous variety of dining options awaits you on every voyage. Princess offers you the choice of Traditional Dining with fixed time and seating, or Anytime Dining with the flexibility to dine when and with whom you choose.

  • Traditional Dining is the classic cruise experience, allowing you to dine at set times with the same table mates and wait staff each evening.
  • Anytime Dining* offers more flexibility, giving you the freedom to dine with whom you choose, anytime between 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. in a selection of elegant, upscale restaurants.

Both options offer menus featuring creatively-prepared appetizers, entrees and desserts that change each day of your voyage.

* Not available on Sun, Dawn, and Sea Princess (while in Australia), Ocean, or Pacific Princess.
